Joe Theismann (b. 1949) led Notre Dame's Fighting Irish to a 20-3-2 record and was runner-up in the voting for the Heisman Trophy in 1970. After his college hall mates hung a banner, "Theismann for Heisman", Joe changed the pronunciation of his name to conform to this rhyme. Though drafted by both the NFL Miami Dolphin's and the American League baseball Minnesota Twins, Theismann began his pro career with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, before signing with the Washington Redskins in 1974. In 1982, Joe Theismann led the Redskins to victory in Super Bowl XVII. He went to the Pro Bowl, and was voted to the UPI All-NFC Team. The next year, he led the team to a 14-2 regular season record, followed by a 51-7 rout of the L.A. Rams in the NFC playoffs. The Redskins lost that Super Bowl. Theismann was named the AP's NFL MVP, the AP Offensive Player of the Year, the Pro Bowl Player of the Game and to the All-NFL Team.After gruesome broken leg resulting from a sack in a Monday night game against the New York Giants ended Theismann's career in 1985, he became a sportscaster with ESPN. On February 2014 Theismann appeared as himself on the post-Super-Bowl edition of Brooklyn Nine-Nine; and on September 2014 he was honored by the Ride of Fame as they christened a double decker sightseeing bus in Washington, District of Columbia, dedicated to him and his achievements.
